Sydney FC's free-kick specialist Allana Kennedy must have been extremely confused by her oppositions unique way of defending a free-kick in their win against Brisbane Roar this weekend.
Kennedy stood over the ball as Brisbane Roar players bobbed up and down before the free-kick was taken.
I'm guessing this was a way of distracting their opponent and it actually worked. The 24-year-old blasted over the bar as viewers were left scratching their heads.

The wall bobs up and down before the free-kick...
We've never seen anything like this before. Kennedy took their antics in good spirits, though.
As you can see in the above footage the defender goes over to a number of Brisbane players and gives them a high five while laughing to herself.
Even she appreciated their efforts, but many questioned Brisbane's sportsmanship.
Sydney FC went on to win the game 2-1 thanks to goals from Caitlin Foord and Sofia Huerta, but this moment grabbed the headlines.

Personally I think that's bad sportsmanship.- reckless monkey :monkey_face: (@loftymonkey) February 10, 2019
Same as shouting to put someone off about to kick a ball, which is a yellow card.
If this starts to happen in the Premier League it will be banned for ungentlemanly, sorry unpersonly conduct for sure.- LDB (@longdistblue) February 10, 2019
Have you ever seen anything like this before?
From the swerve of Roberto Carlos to the bend of David Beckham, we've had the pleasure of witnessing some game-changing free-kicks in years gone by, but nothing comes close to this from East Fukuoka FC.
The Japanese High School have revolutionised the set-piece with a routine like no other.
It involves a second wall lining up in front of the opposition defence and a masterstroke of ducking in chorus.
Linked arm in arm, the three-player-wall slowly edge away from the ball, backing into the opposition defence.
Three steps later and seconds before the free-kick taker shoots, the East Fukuoka wall ducks in unison, confusing both defender and goalkeeper.
